RIP Richard Pryor

by Lady Glock


Sad, sad news:

The pioneering comedian, whose audacious style influenced generations of standup artists, died Saturday of a heart attack at age 65, said his business manager, Karen Finch. He had been ill for years with multiple sclerosis, a degenerative disease of the nervous system.

“By expressing his heart, anger and joy, Richard Pryor took comedy to its highest form,” Steve Martin said.

He will be missed.
